LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The Colorado State men's golf team closed the fall season on Tuesday in strong fashion, capturing a second-place finish at the 2013 Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate at the New Mexico State Golf Course.

"I was pleased with our result this week, to finish second and only lose to the home team," said head coach Christian Newton. "Cam (Harrell) and Parker (Edens) played really well, and Jimmy (Makloski) and Patrick (Winther) had some bright spots."

The upperclassmen tandem of senior Parker Edens and junior Cameron Harrell led the Rams with consistent play throughout the tournament, tying for sixth with three-round scores of even-par 213, six strokes off the pace of medalist Brett Walker from New Mexico State.

Harrell carded an even-par 71 during Tuesday's final round to move up from eighth place following Monday's two rounds. 

"All of us would've liked to save a couple shots here and there today to give us a chance to win but overall it was a good finish for the fall season," said Harrell. "It's going to be nice to get some time off and rest but we need to work hard in the offseason and it'll pay off once February comes when we head to Hawai'i."

Edens posted his top individual finish of the fall, matching Harrell's sixth-place showing with a final round of 1-over 73, to eclipse his 15th-place standing at CSU's own Ram Masters Invitational in mid-September.

Junior Patrick Winther and freshman Jimmy Makloski also finished tied in the standings, shooting three-round scores of 7-over 220 to grab shares of 22nd place. Winther closed with a 1-over 72 in Tuesday's final round, capping a season-best finish for the Oklahoma State transfer. Makloski's 2-over 73 helped the Pueblo, Colo., native match his career-best finish, set in his collegiate debut at the Ram Masters.

Also competing for the Rams was sophomore Dominic Kieffer who closed play in a tie for 77th in the 96-player field with a three-round score of 234 (+21).

Host New Mexico State held off CSU's charge, finishing six strokes ahead of the Rams with a team three-round score of 858 (+6) on their home course. The Rams carded a 12-over 864, seven strokes ahead of in-state rival Northern Colorado, which finished third with an 871 (+19).  Wichita State (876) and UTEP (877) rounded out the top-5 in the team standings.

The tournament closes out the fall slate for the Rams, who resume tournament play Feb. 19-21 at the John Burns Intercollegiate in Lihue, Hawai'i.

"The guys will have a week off and then we will begin our offseason practice and workouts," added Newton. "It's time to hit the books hard and finish the semester strong in the class room."
